'This engaging biography offers a rich and sympathetic account of one of the most important intellectual stars of the Enlightenment'

»

Allan Massie, The Scotsman

«

'Thought-provoking, easy-to-digest, and peppered with tales that could form the basis of a binge-worthy TV drama'

»

Scottish Field

«

'Perman deftly picks his way through Hutton's life explaining his complex theories and mind-stretching ideas'

»

History Scotland Magazine

«

'In his attention to the social context of Hutton's life and work, Ray Perman provides a welcome addition to the still short First Geologist bookshelf. James Hutton: The Genius of Time helps us to appreciate Hutton and the scientific fuse he lit'

»

Andrew H. Knoll, Times Literary Supplement

«

'It is hard to see how Ray Perman's excellent biography of James Hutton is ever likely to be supplanted as the definitive account of Hutton's life and ideas'

»

Ken Lussey, Undiscovered Scotland
